The Pirates (as well as the Red Sox) reportably are interested in Justin Duchscherer –a free-agent starter. The right-hander has had only five starts during the 2010 season (2-1 with a 2.89 ERA) due to injuries.
Duchscherer missed the entire 2009 season because of elbow surgery as well as problems with clinical depression.
In eight seasons –seven with the Oakland Athletic’s– he has a 3.13 ERA (163 appearances).
There is also speculation that the Pirates could be interested in starter Jon Garland. Garland spent the 2010 season with another small market team–the San Diego Padres. In 33 starts he was 14-12 with a 3.47 ERA. Garland made $4.7 Million last season.
